    Default Best thing on telly this morning: Ed Balls attempting to be a man of the people...

    Using the term 'twenty thousand quid' in an attempt to be the people's champion.

    Ed Balls, right down-to earth geezer who just happened to go to a private school, Oxford and then Harvard.

    Gawd blimey, Ed, me ol' China. Seen Mary Poppins lately?

    It's amusing to see one of the worst bullies in parliament whining about everyone shouting at him and that it put him off.. Poor little love with a stutter, my arse.

    No no no.. He is a school bully in an interview suit. Mandleson was a devious, clever schemer..

    He missed a bit of an open goal in Parliament yesterday, but then again Osborne did a good job of spinning a shit performance and it's not the easiest job in the world commenting on some fairly complex financial tinkering when you've only had 5 minutes to study it.

    Lovely to see so many Tory sycophants are clearly so scared of him they rally round on cue to throw insults

    Is it a competition for who can have the dorkiest, most out of touch, overly simplistic fat bully as Chancellor ?

    I did think the Tories had this in the bag with Osborne, before about 2009, but since he's been Chancellor, I actually think he's been OK. Not completely marvellous in every possible respect, perhaps, but OK, or more than OK, in more ways than I would have thought possible...

    But Labour are walking it at the moment.

    Ed Balls is, IMHO, an astonishingly awful, stupid, nasty person. I wouldn't trust him to pass the salt at the dinner table. I had no idea such things were even possible.

    I don't think he is stupid TBH.
    The one good thing he does it sleep with Yvette C. It shuts her up for a minute or two and saves one of the rest of us having to experience it (though I am guess that Hunter would be ok about it) ... she has become the bitter and twisted socialist's version of Harriet Harperson

    Shame he's still taking his salary, and amassing his pension in the meantime.
    He hasn't taken part in a single debate in Parliament this year...he did take 124k for a 4 hour conference in Russia though...Comrade

    He turned up in Parliament last week, apparently there was going to be some sort of celebration marking 12 months with him darkening the door, so he popped in and made a no doubt valid and important point during debate involving Scotland. Apparently. But thats probably just my bias...
